  • March!

    Sixty Seconds with Judi March proclaims the beginning of Spring. So, lettuce rejoice. Yes, I did that on purpose. Now is the time to prepare those beds and get busy planting some early crops. With the help of the Farmer’s Almanac and a few old wives tales I have put together a great little guide for
  • Oh, What We Do!

    Sixty Seconds with Judi The last few weeks I have been traveling with my co-workers.  We took a trip to Atlanta and another to Fort Lauderdale.

      Okay, so we got through January and February is just beginning. Do you have those winter blues yet?  Are you wondering what to do with yourself? Well, let me answer that for you! Don’t hibernate for the winter. The sun is shining most days and you still need a good dose of vitamin D;
  • The Light of Linvilla

    Sixty Seconds with Judi This week we have suffered a loss on the Farm. Our beloved Matriarch, Peg Linvill has passed away. Peg was such a light to all of us at Linvilla.  Her strength and sense of humor made all who work here feel as if we were part of the family. Many of
  • Viva la Foodie!

    I was thinking the other day as I watched the food network; when did this obsession with designer food begin? Have we always been as obsessed with our culinary delights as we are now? Or is this something relatively new? Let’s face it we have always loved to eat. But now it seems everything needs
